Day 352-Soooooooooo tired

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Wow! I am really tired! I worked until midnight at my Omaha job last night, then turned around and worked at 7:45am at my small town job. Not much sleep in between. I managed surprisingly well at work today and felt pretty alert. After work, I went on a quick walk to get my workout in. I was just over 0.5 mile from my house when I realized I was starting to get a little dizzy. I made it home ok, and ended up doing 1.2 miles in 22 minutes. I don't have any energy left, so I am really looking forward to bedtime tonight. I think the kids will be in charge the rest of the evening, and hubby is picking up dinner. No more work for this girl today.

    Take it easy, Chris. Knew you'd have it tough with working late and getting up early. Get some rest and have a good Friday. Good job on the walk!

Day 351- A good walk on a sunny day

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

I finally squeezed in a longer walk today. After napping again, not quite as long as yesterday, I got my day started. I feel pretty good. I managed 1.8 miles today in 35 minutes. I'm working so many hours that I've decided I need to take back my exercise a notch, so I don't over do it. I've noticed I've had an easier time this week eating better. I really haven't strayed from my eating plan. I feel really good about that, since I even did well at a buffet on Sunday.

Enjoy the sunshine Iowa!

Days 348, 349 & 350

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Sunday, Monday and Tuesday aren't stellar exercise days for me, but I got my ten minutes in all the same. All three days were ten minutes on the elliptical. My body seems pretty worn out, so I probably couldn't handle much more, even if I had the time.

Yesterday I felt pretty worn out from having worked all weekend. Sundays when I work are pretty exhausting. I still get up early to go to church. This Sunday we were able to go out to eat afterward at a nice local buffet. I love small towns. We always run into people we know. Then I was off to work. I get home late, and then have to get up early on Monday to get everyone out the door. I tried to sleep in since hubby was home, but was anxious. I think it's "mom anxiousness" that I should be doing something. So I didn't get my extra sleep yesterday that I needed to catch up.

Today I did. I went back to bed after getting everyone out the door. I slept till noon! I feel more like myself now, but still need a cup or two of coffee to shake off the drowsies.

Have a good week everyone!

Day 347-Similar to yesterday

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Wow! Was is gorgeous outside today! When I went for my walk it was sunny and 72 outside. My 13 year old daughter and I walked up to the cemetery again for a total walk of about 1.2 miles. I was so depressed that I had to come to work. I really wanted to play hooky today.

Day 346

Friday, November 09, 2012

Only had time for a short walk today. It ended up being 0.9 mile, but has large hills. I walked to the cemetery. November is a special month for Catholics to pray for the deceased. Our cemetery here in my small town has Gingko trees. The leaves look like fans and I gathered some for my kids on my walk. A very peaceful walk for my mind, challenging due to the hills for my body.

    Walk those hills. I love setting the incline on the treadmill to at least 10 because then I can definetely feel it. Don't regret the shortness of your walk, be pleased with the extra calories burned from the hills. Great job.
